For garlic lovers. This recipe makes both garlic-infused oil and creamy roasted garlic cloves at the same time. The roasted garlic oil can be used on salads, boiled red skins, baked potatoes, sauteeing, frying eggs, as a finishing drizzle on pasta and pizza, etc. And the cloves are delicious spread on bagels, toast, crackers, eng. muffins, in cooking.
You can use already-peeled garlic cloves from the grocery store.
Tuna patties are milder than salmon. And the flavor of the other ingredients shine through the tuna. Serve them on a plate with pan-fried potatoes and sliced tomatoes and avocados. Or in a toasted pita with lettuce, thin sliced tomatoes and a touch of mayo. Don't forget a handful of potato chips.
These have a spiced, very orange flavor, and NOT overly sweet. Can be used as an accompaniment for roasted duck or chicken; a garnish for desserts; eaten with cheese. A slice on a toasted and buttered English muffin is delicious. Modified from a recipe from an Australian News website.
This frittata takes only six ingredients usually found on hand. It's so easy to put together. Though I've only made it with Jarlesberg Swiss, you can use your favorite cheese(s) such as fontina, mozzarella, provolone, jalapeno jack, asiago; or a combination of a couple. I increase the olive oil to a tablespoon. Recipe from Simply Recipes online.
The sauce is slightly creamy and rich, yet light. If you don't tell, no one will guess it's vegan. It's good even a couple days later. VARIATION: Instead of vegan no-chicken broth and coconut milk, you can use 3-1/2 cups plain soy milk. Modified from The Compassionate Cook cookbook.
If you like a creamy chai, try this one. Using whole spices instead of spice powders produces a clean taste, prevents a murky suspension, and no dregs in the bottom of the cup. Star anis and/or a vanilla bean can be added for variation. From Fresh Indian cook book, by Sunil Vijayakar.
NOTE: Though this is a strongly brewed tea, some posters thought it was too strong for their taste. So I've added options to Steps 2 and 3 for those that prefer a less strong tea.
The perfect size for one or two people when baked in two mini loaf pans. Eat one now and store one for later. Freezes very well. Tastes best when tightly wrapped and allowed to set overnight. I like to use walnut or coconut oil, but any neutral/mild tasting oil will do fine. There are variations listed below.
A very tasty, and tender seitan is produced. You can change the taste by the changing or adding different spices. eg. adding traditional chicken herbs like sage, poultry seasoning will produce a mock chicken. Found this recipe on-line.
A not too sweet and almost foolproof spice apple cake. You can also make this in a bundt pan. But I think the springform round cake shape seems appropriate for this cake. Optional spices can be added like cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, a pinch of ground cloves, etc.
A very lemony pasta that can be eaten as a main meal with a salad and toasted bread, or as a side dish with chicken or seafood. It's especially delicious served with pan seared shrimp. I counted a tablespooon of lemon juice/zest as the yield from one medium lemon. So the amount can be a little under- or over if you like it really sour!
